Story

The Domaine Lombard estate was founded in 1981 by Jean-Marie and Sylvette Lombard, who contributed to the revival of the Brezème appellation after it was decimated by the Phylloxera outbreak, falling from 250 acres to just a few acres in the 1930s. In 2012, the Lombards retired and a new dynamic team led by Emmanuelle and Julien Montagnon took over the estate. With passion, commitment, and courage they replanted part of the vineyards, secured more land and finally built a brand new winery. The estate currently comprises 5 acres of Syrah and Viognier in Vin de Pays Drôme and 18 acres of mostly Syrah, with some Roussanne and Marsanne in Brezème. The vines are between 15 and 30 years old.

Vineyard

This Crozes-Hermitage is made exclusively with grapes from the “Chassis” terroir, one of the best growing areas of the appellation. This Terroir is composed of thick layers of pebbles from different glacial periods, mixed with red clay to form the relatively flat landscapes of “Chassis”.

Vinification

The vinification partly uses whole bunches, which gives this generous and ample wine real sapidity and great length on the palate. Fermentation by natural yeast. Matured for over 12 months in concrete vats. Filtration at bottling.

Tasting Notes

The delicate tannic structure of this wine and its aromas of crushed strawberry make it an excellent wine for drinking right away, full of energy and flavor. With time, more powerful aromas such as leather and truffle will appear to further elevate the wine.

Food Pairing

Our favorite dish with this wine is without a doubt a rack of lamb with spring vegetables. Drink now or lay down for up to 6 years.
